WWE RAW (11/5/2018)

WWE kicks off with a video package recapping this past Friday’s WWE Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia. From there we see the roster backstage as Acting RAW G.M. talks about Crown Jewel and Survivor Series.

Security is blocking the ring as we’re in the arena now. Corbin announces that he will face WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle later this evening and the winner will be the Team Captain for the RAW men’s team in the traditional Survivor Series elimination match. Dolph Ziggler and Braun Strowman already have spots on the team. Alexa Bliss is the women’s Team Captain, however she is just leading her team, not wrestling. Strowman gets through security and goes after Corbin.

The Riott Squad vs. Sasha Banks, Bayley & Natalya

As advertised, the six-women rematch from WWE Evolution pitting The Riott Squad against the trio of Sasha Banks, Bayley and Natalya is up first inside the ring for this week’s RAW.

The match ends up finishing with a No Contest after Ruby Riott stomped on Nattie’s glasses, which belonged to her father, late WWE legend Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart. The Riott Squad ends up leaving as Bayley and Sasha Banks attempt to console Natalya.

Winners: No Contest

RAW Tag-Team Championships
Seth Rollins vs. The Authors Of Pain

From there, we see Seth Rollins come to the ring with both the WWE Intercontinental and WWE RAW Tag-Team Titles. He praises Roman Reigns but is interrupted by The Authors Of Pain and Drake Maverick. This sets up Rollins vs. AOP for the titles.

The match went on as a 2-on-1 handicap bout with the RAW Tag-Team Titles on-the-line. In the end, The AOP defeated The Architect to become the new champions.

After the match, Dean Ambrose came out to the ring and blasted Rollins out of nowhere with a Dirty Deeds. He left immediately after.

Following the tag-title change, Dolph Ziggler comes out with a microphone, but is cut off by Elias. This leads to a match between the two.

The match delivered in terms of entertainment and crowd excitement. In the end, Elias picked up the win. Prior to the match, he won the Manchester fans over with an Oasis reference.

Winner: Elias

Ronda Rousey Responds To Becky Lynch

Fom there, RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey heads to the ring and cuts a passionate promo on SmackDown Live Becky Lynch about their upcoming WWE Survivor Series non-title champion versus champion showdown.

Rousey talks about how Lynch might be The Man, but she is “the baddest b*tch on the planet.” This was a pretty good segment.

Nia Jax vs. Ember Moon

Jax wins in what amounted to a squash match against Moon. After the match, Tamina Snuka came out and it looked like they were going to go at it, but instead they double-teamed Moon and hugged and left.

Winner: Nia Jax

Changes To RAW Main Event

Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin in the match set up in the opener is changed to Angle vs. Drew McIntyre. Corbin ends up driving away from the arena because he didn’t want to be around because of Braun Strowman. He is dodging him like crazy. Corbin announced McIntyre as his replacement as he fled from the arena.

Finn Balor vs. Bobby Lashley

In our co-main event of this week’s RAW, Lashley defeated Balor in singles competition. After the match, McIntyre came out and stared down Lashley. He then turned and helped Balor up but immediately dropped him with a Claymore Kick.

Winner: Bobby Lashley

Drew McIntyre vs. Kurt Angle

In our main event, Drew McIntyre replaces Baron Corbin to take on Kurt Angle with the winner becoming the Team Captain of the men’s RAW team in the Survivor Series elimination match. McIntyre ended up winning by forcing Angle to submit with his own Ankle Lock submission.

After the match, McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler went to attack Angle further, however Braun Strowman came out and cleared the ring to make the save and end the show.

Winner: Drew McIntyre
